1 trip2 trip Elephant Butte - Arches National Park
Date: 05/25/2015
Got an early start and we were the only two people on the route for a long time. Many more groups showed up in the afternoon. It was our first time in Elephant Butte and misinterpretation of the directions had us experiencing new tangents and techniques before finding the first rap! It ate up some time but found that others made the same misinterpretations of the directions and ended up where we were. It all worked out and we saw views from angles that I'm guessing many have not seen! It took 6 hours total. Now we know the route I bet we could do it in 2. Gorgeous views and some fun technical climbing.
1 trip Neon Canyon - Escalante
Date: 06/07/2014
Went with a group of 10 and did great even though it was a big number. Did the canyon 2 weeks earlier and replace all webbing then so all was good. Bypassed the upper keeper again. Not going to do that again. Time to do it!! We backpack in and make 2 days out of it. One day we will do choprock on the same trip.....need some experience first!
1 trip Neon Canyon - Escalante
Date: 05/24/2014
My first canyon ever! Along with my son's made for a great experience for sure! Had an experienced member of the Page search and rescue team take us through. Bypassed the first keeper. Did it without a wet suit and was fine. The women in our group wore farmer janes without the top. Did it again two weeks later.....
